Joseph Fallon, Class of 2010 | My story so far! Editor Zealot LA

Joseph Fallon

Joseph Fallon 2017

 I have been asked to write for the Alumni page a few times, but I have always had a goal in mind which I strived to achieve, before I started to look back.

Today I am sitting on a laptop in my apartment in West Hollywood, living a life I had dreamt about for over 14 years. So I thought it was a good time to write something.

This is a very long story, BUT if you prevail to the end, like all good stories, there are some valuable lessons inside.

From University to Editing

I got my first video camera for Christmas when I was 15 and never put it down. Like most, I grew up dreaming of working in Hollywood, directing movies.

I studied Media Production between 2007-2010 specialising in Single Camera and Digital Media. By the end of the course I was passionate about all aspects of the degree, even the parts I left behind in previous semesters. After graduating I was undecided on what to do next, my first thought was to do a Masters. In order to pay for it, I decided to take a year out, get the first job I could find as I saved up.

The job turned out to be the Mcdonalds at the end of my road. While working behind the grill, I applied for jobs and work experience at various production houses to gain media experience. After hundreds of emails and applications, and 7 or 8 interviews for Runner and junior positions, I was unsuccessful. I needed experience, which I was unable to get. I was trapped in the classic catch 22. Continue reading

Michelle Yates, Class of 2016 | From Fresher to Graduate

MichelleYates-2016Grad-withClemUniversity has been some of the best years of my life, just like it has for many. Through the length of my degree I met other people interested in the same areas of media. As of Wednesday evening on September 7th I became a proud graduate of the University of Lincoln School of Film and Media. It is amazing to see how far everyone and myself has come. The photo is of Clem Monro and me during the reception to the graduation ceremony and she must of given me one of the biggest hugs I have ever received from her when she congratulated me. She said well done to me when I had told her I had received a First. Clem will be able to see my projects grow further, as I have a place on the MA in Photography, which she also had every belief I would get on to even when I was not sure I would.

For me, the first semester on first year was difficult, as I was finding it hard to get used to university life and time manage the workload in twelve weeks. Continue reading

Congrats! Class of 2016 | Uni of Lincoln School of Film & Media

GraduationDay_UoLToday is graduation day for the University of Lincoln School of Film & Media final year students. Head of LSFM Dr. Sarah Barrow said: “Good luck to all our graduands and look forward to seeing you at 7.30pm today!” At the lovely Lincoln Cathedral our graduands will receive their degree certificates along with high profile Honorary Graduates, like acclaimed TV and film producer Tony Garnett in recognition for his outstanding contribution to the industry. Tony said he likes visiting the University of Lincoln and “I probably get more from talking to the students in the Film and Media Department than they get from me. You always learn from students.”

UPDATE post-LSFM graduation! After receiving his Doctor of Arts Honorary Award Tony said to our alumni audience “I congratulate them and I wish them success and self-fulfilment in their work, too.” Continue reading
